You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
